OP's prior posts were well within the spectrum. Let's give him the benefit of the doubt.

Remember the movie "Fargo", where the dealer (William Macy) was diddling the paperwork? Could be a repeat. Hope OP isn't spread all over some field via a chipper.....

yardbird is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Several years ago there was a Ford dealership around here that was doing the same thing on new and used vehicles. They would issue temp tags, then issue another when that one expired. In this state it's against the law to issue more than one temp tag, or to renew one. The dealer has one month from date of temp tag issue to get all paperwork processed and the regular tag in the hand of the owner.

People were not getting their tag or registration on new and used vehicles, by the hundreds over months. It turned out the dealer was not paying Ford, or whoever was floor planning their new cars when they were sold, so they were not able to get the MCO in order to apply for a title. Also, late model cars that were traded into them that money was still owed to a bank on were not paid off while in their inventory, or when sold.

They were selling the vehicles with the previous lein not paid off. In some cases the dealer was making the payments on the previous lein to keep the banks thinking the orginal owner still owned the vehicle. The DMV had enough calls for them to start an investigation, and ended up shutting down the dealership. Quite a few people lost their new vehicle and the one they traded in.

Years ago, there was a used car dealership owner in Louisiana who was arrested for fraud. People weren’t getting the title or registration to their vehicles for 6 months or so. When they did get them, it showed that they paid a lot less for the vehicle than they actually did. The owner was turning in a different stack of paperwork to the DMV that showed a lower sales price and forged signature of the customer. This dealer was keeping the difference in taxes from what the customer paid, and what the phony paperwork showed that was owed and was actually sent to the DMV. He went to jail for a few years and the state shut down his business.

I'd expect that from a used car dealership, not a new car dealership.

I ran into that problem in Missouri and called a new Subaru dealership there. They said the Missouri laws made it easier for used car dealerships to continue this shady practice and I bought a used Subaru from a used car dealership known to do that. The car I bought was still owed to the bank on it but the used car dealership covered that up.

Wasn't much though so I paid it off and the Subaru dealership over there did a great job helping me out. Really appreciated that.
